Residential Eating Disorder Treatment
A Supportive, Caring CommunityCastlewood Treatment Centers has three residential treatment facilities, each with its own clinical staff, unique look and therapeutic community. Click below for more information on each of our locations in St. Louis and Monterey. Our therapy is centered on building a consistent, collaborative individual relationship with the primary therapist, psychiatrist and dietitian. A key to our program is working with a qualified team to develop insights into the development and function of your eating disorder while incorporating new skills and behaviors into a life of balance. Our dietitians work with clients to restore normal eating that balances nourishment plus pleasure.
Residential Eating Disorder Treatment at CastlewoodCastlewood provides evidence-based and innovative residential eating disorder treatment approaches. We believe that eating disorders are the result of biological, psychological and social causes, and that clients need to understand their unique development track that has led to the need for the eating disorder. By understanding and treating the underlying issues, eating disorder recovery is more likely to be sustained long-term. Residential treatment is a more advanced level of care that provides a higher intensity of monitoring and frequency of treatment. Clients live at Castlewood, and receive an individualized care plan designed for their unique combination of needs. Clients attend group 6-8 hours per day along with participating in 6 individual sessions with their treatment team weekly. Staff is available on-site 24 hours a day to provide monitoring and support for our residential clients. We provide care to men and women, ages 16 and up. Our eating disorder residential treatment facilities are modern, beautiful, and comfortable. All areas are designed to provide the most beneficial therapeutic environment. We also want our clients to feel at home, since residential treatment can last for several weeks. Wooded and grassy areas surround Castlewood, with many serene spaces to enjoy.
